TracVision TV8

Watch Favourite Satellite TV Programming from the Comfort of Your Yacht
One of the pleasures of a fully equipped yacht is the ability to watch satellite TV from your stateroom or salon every time you are on the water. With KVH’s powerful and sleek TracVision TV8, you can count on high-performance tracking and excellent reception (including HDTV programming) no matter where your favourite cruising grounds are found. The 81 cm (32 inch) diameter antenna features an expanded coverage footprint so you can enjoy hundreds of channels of uninterrupted, crystal-clear digital entertainment with top-quality sound.

TracVision TV-Hub for Advanced Technology that’s Easy to Use
The TracVision TV8 features the innovative TV-Hub, a streamlined belowdecks unit that makes it extremely easy to use your satellite TV system. The TV-Hub’s user interface, designed for viewing on your smartphone, tablet, smart TV, or computer, enables a wizard for easy installation and setup and puts advanced satellite switching capabilities at your fingertips.
